About Martha Argerich
Martha Argerich – universally acclaimed and undisputed legend of the piano – makes her long-awaited Singapore and Southeast Asian debut with lifelong family friend and Argentine compatriot Darío Alejandro Ntaca. In the Festival double-bill concerto finale, Darío Alejandro Ntaca leads in the elegant mellifluousness of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17; a contrasting prelude to Martha Agerich’s ferocious natural genius in the concerto synonymous with her legend, the Prokofiev No. 3.
Martha Argerich will also be performing in a recital together with Darío Alejandro Ntaca on 11 Jun 2018. Tickets available here.

The quarter millenial celebrations culminate in the long-awaited Singapore debut of the legendary Martha Argerich in duo recital and in Prokofiev’s brilliant Piano Concerto No. 3.
